Nampa School District’s robotics team, named NASKCO (for Nampa, Skyview and Columbia high schools), participated in the Utah FIRST Robotics competition in West Valley, Utah.
The team is led by adviser John Schisel, a teacher at Columbia. The students competed with a robot they spent six weeks designing and building. FIRST Robotics unveils each year’s challenge at the same time nationwide, and students have a short window of time to design a robot to meet specific challenges.
Using math, science and engineering skills, the students designed steampunk-inspired robots to prepare long distance airships for a race.
